To get the discount, you will first need to prove that you are a student – having a student email will not suffice. To do this, you must login to Student Beans to verify your account and gain access to OnePlus’ Student Program. From there, you can claim your 10 percent coupon and have one month to actually use it.
You can use the coupon to get 10 percent off your next order, which can include the OnePlus 5, though you are limited to one per order. It is up to you whether you want to pick up the phone or just get a few accessories, such as an extra Dash Power Adapter or a few cases.

The question, then, becomes whether you would want to pick up the OnePlus 5. We are headed into another season of smartphone releases, and with the likes of the Samsung Galaxy Note 8, LG V30, and Google Pixel 2 on the horizon, it might be wise to wait and see what else you can get for your scratch.
At the same time, the OnePlus 5 appreciably exceeds its value proposition by being one of the only phones that packs Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 835 and 6 GB of RAM for less than $500, an enticing price point for college students looking to save some cheddar.
If you fall in the latter camp, the Student Program is available in the UK, Germany, France, Italy, Spain, Netherlands, Denmark, Sweden, Finland, Austria, Belgium, Portugal, Poland, Slovenia, Czech Republic, Croatia, Hungary, US, and Canada. Students can claim a new coupon every year, so if you forget to use the 10 percent discount code, there is always next year.
